SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks set a major league record with their 23rd straight road loss, making dubious history in getting trounced by the San Francisco Giants 10-3 Thursday.
The dejected D-backs trudged off the field and quietly made their way back to Oracle Park's visiting clubhouse following the final out of their latest loss, breaking a tie with the 1963 Mets and '43 Philadelphia Athletics for road futility.
The Diamondbacks only consolation coming off this four-game sweep: They don't play again on the road until June 25 at San Diego, exactly two months to the day since their last road victory. Then again, Arizona isn't scheduled for a road game against a sub-.500 team until July 27 at Texas.
